Dustin Collins’ attempt to boost his pro-Second Amendment song “Cold Dead Hands” amid Democrats’ gun control push following the Las Vegas shooting attack quickly met a Facebook shutdown.
Collins inquired about why Facebook had shut it down and was sent a message saying the boost “doesn’t comply with Advertising policies.”
Dustin reacted by telling his Facebook followers, “Tried to boost my pro-2nd Amendment song on Facebook #denied I guess I’ll have to write a First Amendment song next.”
He then tried to boost “Cold Dead Hands” again, and on October 8, he received a message that said:
The ad he tried to use to boost his song bore the caption, “Tired of seeing people trash your rights? Let them know how you feel with Cold Dead Hands … a big leap into the real world”:
On August 7, Breitbart News published an interview with Collins in which he said:
America was built on guns. We took our freedom from the English. If it wasn’t for guns we’d be having tea and biscuits instead of steak and beer. It’s that kind of thing to me. Without the Second Amendment there is no First Amendment. There’s nothing that stops anybody from coming and taking what you worked hard for. To me it’s just a very simple fact of life; it’s freedom, that’s what owning a gun is. It’s the very foundation of freedom.
